Zen-untangled! Week 8


Tangle All Around is working on week eight of the Zen-untangled! project.

The patterns this week were all very similar. I think they are all cousins of fescu and I have no idea why Rick and Maria felt they needed a whole bunch of different names.

These were a little harder. Bucky was a tough one for me and what you see right there is probably the only time I will ever use this tangle. Not zen for me when it doesn’t work. Hahahahah! Love cyme, that’s a fun one!

And my tile for the week. Those colors are Daler Rowney inks. I really love using them, so bright and beautiful and easy to draw over. Week eight is done for me. Moving on to break week. We are taking a week to catch up. It is a perfect time for you to join us if you would like to. We have had 29 people join in the past few days so you won’t be starting all by yourself. Just click here and answer the simple questions that tells me you are a person and not a computer.

  1. Great to see your pages for this week Alice.

    A challenging batch for sure. I’ve been thinking about the 4 Fescu type ones… and while I can’t pretend to know R & M’s motivations I wonder if in part it was about developing a batch of ultra simple tangles at the start so people could see how easy it could be. Perhaps the idea of tangleations came a little later. And then some tangles like Dewd – which is the most complex and interesting of those, to me at least, came some years later in the journey.

    I’m having fun trying to zone into their essential differences and emphasize those. Having a break week next week will help a lot I think! πŸ˜‰

  2. Love your tile, the colors as usual are great. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ€—
    Thanks for all your hard work on this challenge!

  3. So colorful! Yes, I feel the same way about all of these! I am at the point of the final combo tile and got stuck how to combine them….maybe some color on the tile will help πŸ™‚

  4. A really wonderful choice putting those 4 fescu-ish tangles together. It makes you look at each one closely & really see what is unique to each. Now that’s given me an idea ………. select official tangles that are very similar & do little mini studies exploring each batch. You know…….. Architectural Zenology???
